The Death card is one of the most feared but also misunderstood cards in the Tarot. Though it may be interpreted literally, commonly, it's about renovation, end of cycles, or profound changes. But my favorite aspect of this card is the sense of mindfulness it conveys. Because when you are aware that nothing lasts forever, that instantly makes you more present, as you feel an urge to enjoy the moment. For example, when you think that a loved one may die one day, it urges you to let go of any disagreements of the past and concentrate on enjoying your relationship to the fullest. Not later, but now. Though in western cultures thinking of Death is regarded as morbid and undesirable, it's a great tool for living a mindful life, in all its beautiful impermanence.
